Ryan throws 3 TD passes, Falcons hold off Bucs 34-29

By Paul Newberry, Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — After Matt Ryan and Jameis Winston traded touchdown pass after touchdown pass, it came down to a few wacky flips near the goal line. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers nearly pulled off a miracle. But, in the end, the Atlanta Falcons finally got a much-needed victory to bounce their way. Ryan threw for 354 yards and three touchdowns as the Falcons snapped a three-game losing streak, holding off Tampa Bay 34-29 Sunday in Winston's return as the Bucs' starter. The Falcons (2-4) scored on their first three possessions and held off a wild comeback by Tampa Bay (2-3), avoiding their first 1-5 start since 2007. The Bucs lost their third in a row. "It was all hands on deck," Atlanta coach Dan Quinn said. Especially on the final play . Winston and the Bucs drove to the Atlanta 21 but were out of timeouts. With the Falcons dropping nearly everyone toward the end zone, expecting a pass, Winston took the snap and darted straight up the middle of the field. When he was about to be tackled at the 10, he pitched the ball toward receiver Adam Humphries, who was so intent on going for the winning score he couldn't hang on. The ball skipped to Mike Evans, who blindly flung it in the direction of DeSean Jackson along the sideline at the 5. Jackson might've had a chance to dive for the end zone, but he couldn't come up with another bouncing ball. It rolled harmlessly out of bounds to end the game. Jackson ripped off his helmet and kicked the pylon in disgust on his way to the locker room. "The play is a play you run once," tight end O.J. Howard said. "It was a great call. We almost got it." Winston, who was suspended for the first three games of the season and came off the bench in Week 4, threw for 395 yards and four TDs. His performance, though, was marred by a pair of interceptions, one a deep ball that was picked off at the Atlanta 1 and a deflected pass in the end zone that ricocheted high in the air and was grabbed by Brian Poole to deny a red-zone scoring chance. Ryan's three TD passes gave him 274 in his career, passing Joe Montana for 16th on the career list. "Obviously it's very special any time your name is brought up with Joe's," Ryan said. "But I'm more excited about the win." He also had a big scramble on third-and-9, powering for a 13-yard gain that set up his final scoring pass. Quinn made a gutsy call with just over a minute remaining, sending on Matt Bryant to attempt a 57-yard field goal with Atlanta clinging to a 31-29 lead. Bryant's kick just cleared the crossbar, extending the Falcons' lead. The 43-yard-old Bryant put everything into the kick and immediately grabbed his right hamstring before hobbling off the field. Quinn's decision forced the Bucs to go for a touchdown. "I can't say enough about Matt Bryant and the kick he had," Quinn gushed. "He's definitely one of the most mentally tough players I've had a chance to coach." JULIO'S DAY Julio Jones went another game without a touchdown catch. The Falcons didn't mind a bit. Jones had 10 receptions for 143 yards — his third 100-yard game of the season — and constantly drew attention away from his teammates. That allowed Austin Hooper, Mohamed Sanu and Tevin Coleman to haul in scoring passes. Jones has gone 11 straight regular-season games without a TD since a Nov. 26, 2017, victory over Tampa Bay, when he had two scoring catches. BUC-KLING DOWN The beleaguered Tampa Bay defense, which is guided by former Falcons coach Mike Smith, was shredded in the first half for three touchdowns, a last-second field goal and 275 yards. It showed a bit of improvement after the break, actually forcing Atlanta to punt on three straight possessions. But, with the game on the line, the Bucs surrendered a 75-yard drive capped by Ryan's 6-yard TD pass to Coleman and a 36-yard possession that set up Bryant's long field goal. Tampa Bay came into the game allowing 34.75 points per game, more than any team in the league. INJURY REPORT Atlanta's receiving corps took a beating. Calvin Ridley, who was leading the Falcons with six touchdown catches, went out in the first half with an ankle injury and didn't return. Sanu was sidelined in the second half with a hip problem after hauling in a 35-yard touchdown pass. The loss of two receivers forced the Falcons to give more playing time to Justin Hardy, Marvin Hall and Russell Gage. Hardy had three catches and Gage came up with a big catch on Atlanta's touchdown drive in the fourth quarter. The Bucs lost defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, who walked slowly off the field in the fourth quarter with an undisclosed injury. Also, cornerback Ryan Smith was evaluated for a possible concussion. UP NEXT Buccaneers: Return home next Sunday to host the Cleveland Browns (2-3-1). Falcons: Host the struggling New York Giants (1-5) on Monday, Oct. 22, to close out a stretch of five home games in the first seven weeks of the season......»»

Wolfsburg is on the rise again in the Bundesliga

By CIARAN FAHEY,  Associated Press BERLIN (AP) — From champions to relegation survivors, Wolfsburg's recent woes on the field have coincided with those of Volkswagen, the German club's main backer. However, the car manufacturer is on the rise again after its emissions scandal, and so is the soccer team after back-to-back seasons in the relegation playoffs. Wolfsburg opened its Bundesliga campaign with wins over highly rated Schalke and Bayer Leverkusen. The 2009 champions, now under coach Bruno Labbadia, are well-organized and playing with a commitment and hunger that had been lacking since 2015. That was the year Wolfsburg finished second behind Bayern Munich and won the German Cup before the breaking of the Volkswagen scandal. Results, coincidentally, suffered thereafter. The win over Leverkusen was unexpected, and the first time in 13 tries that Labbadia won against his former side. "We drew a lot of strength from the relegation playoff (against second-division club Holstein Kiel) and on top of that the team worked really hard in pre-season," Labbadia said Saturday after his team's sixth consecutive win across seasons and including the German Cup. Wolfsburg even had to come from behind after Leon Bailey put Leverkusen ahead. The players didn't panic, but combined well and fought for the equalizer, which came through an own-goal by goalkeeper Ramazan Ozcan. New signing Wout Weghorst then got his first Bundesliga goal and Renato Steffen sealed it with another. "It was really pleasing to see how much of a unit we were and how the team got the deserved reward for the performance," Labbadia said. "We hurt them with our shape. It was a good day for us." Wolfsburg also needed a bit of luck to defeat Schalke, with Daniel Ginczek getting the winner in injury time. The signing of Weghorst has added some much-needed bite to the team's attack. The 25-year-old Dutchman scored 27 goals across all competitions for AZ Alkmaar last season. Wolfsburg also appointed Joerg Schmadtke as sporting director in the offseason. The 54-year-old Schmadtke, a former goalkeeper, enjoyed notable success as sporting director with Cologne, Hannover and Alemannia Aachen. Wolfsburg fans chanted "league leaders, league leaders" after the win propelled it to the top for the afternoon, but Schmadtke said he wasn't interested in the standings "but the fact we stayed stable after conceding a goal is comforting." Wolfsburg was without injured captain Josuha Guilavogui, and goalkeeper Koen Casteels was missing to attend the birth of his daughter. Casteels is the sixth Wolfsburg player to become a father in a little over a month after Marvin Stefaniak, Yunus Malli, Paul-Georges Ntep, Weghorst and Steffen. "That can give you a push," Steffen said. "But I can't get a child every week now." BAYERN'S ADVICE Compared to previous years, Bayern Munich kept transfer activity to a minimum in the offseason, with just Serge Gnabry and Renato Sanches returning from loan spells, while Leon Goretzka's free transfer from Schalke was already announced in January. Spanish defender Juan Bernat departed for Paris Saint-Germain but it looked at one stage as though there would be more business between the sides. PSG made a reported offer for Germany defender Jerome Boateng and was also interested in taking Sanches. Neither deal came to fruition, and Bayern has hit out at the French club for not following through. Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic had already criticized PSG's "strange tactics," and now president Uli Hoeness has said the side should fire its sporting director, Antero Henrique. "I would advise Paris Saint-Germain to change its sporting director," Hoeness told Monday's Kicker magazine. "This man is not a figurehead for the club. If PSG wants to be a world club, it can't put up with such a sports director." DORTMUND'S WUNDERKIND Borussia Dortmund has developed a reputation for bringing in young players thanks to success with the likes of Christian Pulisic, Jadon Sancho and Mario Goetze, while Aleksander Isak and Dan-Axel Zagadou are waiting to follow suit. The next prospect could be 13-year-old Youssoufa Moukoko, a Cameroon-born forward who has been scoring at leisure since he joined Dortmund's youth setup from St. Pauli in 2016. Strong and direct with a clear eye for goal, Moukoko was the leading scorer for Dortmund's under-15 team - while still 12 - to help the side win the Regionalliga West title and earn a call-up for Germany's under-16 team last year. He scored the decisive goal at Bayern Munich in the final, finishing the season with 40 goals in 28 games. This season, with the under-17s, has begun as the last continued. Moukoko already has six goals from four games. "We're going to give him all the time in the world for his development," Dortmund youth coordinator Lars Ricken told Kicker. "He can't play with the professionals until he's 17. So nobody needs to start gasping because of him.".....»»

ASIAN GAMES: PHI triathletes plunge into action

PALEMBANG --- Although virtually unbeatable in Southeast Asia, Nikko Huelgas and Kim Mangrobang are aware that they will be going up against Asia’s big guns in the 18th Asian Games triathlon competitions unfolding on Friday. Reigning Southeast Asian Game’s women’s triathlon champion Mangrobang and vastly-improved Fil-Am Kim Kilgroe take first crack in the swim-bike-run event starting at 7:30 a.m. (8:30 a.m. in Manila) within and around the Jakabaring Sport City complex here. “With her present from, a top 5 finish would not be farfetched for Kim, and if she steps up, I woudn’t be surprised of a podium finish,” said coach Annie de Leon-Brown of the Europe-trained Mangrobang, who placed ninth in the last Asiad held in Incheon, South Korea four years ago. While defending Japanese champion  Ai Ueda is not around, compatriot Yuka Sato, ranked No. 20 in the International Triathlon world ratings, looms as the top favorite in the women’s division, Brown pointed out Huelgas, a two-time SEA Games goild medalist,  and  John Chicano, the 2017 Malaysian SEA Games medalist, will see action in the men’s competition  on Saturday, and which Brown said would be even tougher considering there will be more entries.   “If either Nikko or John finish in the top 10 we would be happy,” Brown said. In the mixed relay on Sunday, Huelgas and Mangrobang will be joined by Claire Adorna, the 2017 Singapore SEAG gold medalist, and Mark Hosana, she added. “Claire and Mark were chosen (to be part of the team) because they were really meant for the mixed relay, which promises to be an exciting race,” Brown stressed. While she had no complaints about the swim leg at the JSC man-made lake, the coach was a bit worried about the bike course “because we saw there were still grains of sand on the road during practice. This could result in accidents once the triathletes race around the route, which is a bit technical (hard).”    Brown said that they were assured by Asian Games organizers that they would clear the road of sand to make it safe and secure for the riders.   .....»»

ASIAN GAMES: Wushu s Divine Wally earns Philippines fifth bronze

JAKARTA — Divine Wally salvaged a bronze from wushu’s women’s -52 kgs of sanda late Wednesday night to prevent what could have been a first medal-less day for the Philippines in the 18th Asian Games. A day after the entire country celebrated Hidilyn Diaz’s success in weightlifting, no other Filipino athlete from the 272-member delegation came so close to winning another gold medal with China bagged its 35th gold medal to widen its gap over second running Japan with 18 golds and Japan with 10. The one-gold and five-bronze haul put the Philippines at No. 16 on the medal tally board—behind Southeast Asian rivals No. 4 Indonesia (six golds) and No. 8 Thailand (four golds) and ahead of No. 17 Singapore (one gold and two silvers), No. 20 Vietnam (three silvers and six bronzes) and No. 23 Myanmar (two bronzes). The veteran internationalist Wally lost to a taller and more aggressive Samiroumi Elaheh Mansoryan of Iran, 1-2, in their quarterfinal match to settle for the bronze at the Jakarta International Expo. The five-foot flat Wally tried her best to connect with her strikes, but the 5-foot-6 two-time world champion Mansoryan evaded them, while connecting on her attacks to advance to the championship round on Thursday and possibly finally win the gold that eluded her in Incheon 2014, where she was a silver medalist. Mansoryan, the world champion in Kuala Lumpur (2013) and Kazan, Russia (2017), will dispute the gold with China’s Li Yueyao at 10 a.m. Also the Asian champion in 2016 in the 56kg class, Mansoryan was simply too much against Wally as she aggressively dominated the Filipina in the final two rounds after trailing the first, 0-1. The 24-year-old Wally, though, improved on her fifth-place finish in the Asian Games as she contributed to the Philippines’ medal haul with its fifth bronze and the second from wushu, counting Agatha Wong’s own medal in the women’s taolu. Wally, the 2016 48 kgs champion of the Asian Championships in Taoyuan, was assured of the bronze after beating Petriwi Selviah of Indonesia, 2-0. She earlier subdued Mimi Yoysaykham of Laos, 2-0. She took up the sport in 2013 at age 18. The Blu Girls, meanwhile, blanked Indonesia, 4-0, also on Wednesday to boost their chances for a podium finish in women’s softball at the Gelura Bung Karno diamond. Mary Ann Antolihao started for the Blu Girls, allowing only four hits and striking out Indonesians before turning over the pitching job to Royevel Palma who struck out four, as the Philippines took its fourth win in five outings. Indonesia virtually bowed out with no win to show after give games. The PH lady batters were coming off a disappointing 1-11 loss to the Japanese late Tuesday. The defending champions bombarded Pinay pitchers Mia Macapagal and Antolihao with 11 hits, nine of them coming at the top of the 4th inning for the abbreviated win. The Philippines has yet to beat the Japanese in their international matches. With the lone setback, the Blu Girls tied previous victim China at second place. The Blu Girls were to take on Chinese-Taipei at 9 p.m. (Philippine time), aiming for a victory that would assure them of a bronze medal in this seven-nation tournament. A win over the Taiwanese would put the Filipinas at no. 2 position after the round-robin elimination and assured them of a bronze medal via the page-system semifinal. The top four teams will advance to a page system semifinal to determine the protagonists for the gold medal. Japan, which blanked Korea earlier in the day is poised to top the chart with clean 5-0 card. In Palembang, top Philippine troika of Liza del Rosario, Lara Posadas and Alexis Sy were derailed by the morning lane conditions and could  muster only seventh place at the start of the bowling championships at the ultra-modern Jakabaring Sports City Bowling Center. Unable to find their lines and adjust in time with the use of the long-oil pattern in the first three games, the Filipina keglers pooled 4026, 300 pinfalls behind the sizzling Malaysian trio of Hamidi Afifah Badrul, Rahman Siti Abdul and Mei Lan Chea, who took the gold with combined tally of 4255. Chinese-Taipeh (4255) settled for silver while Singapore got bronze (4250) in a day of soaring scores with the new scoring system in play, exemplified by Malaysian Badrul’s eye-popping six-game average of 242.83, and with teammates Abdul (238.33) and Cheah just as hot (239.83). The other triumvirate of Maria Lourdes Arles, Rachelle Leon and Dyan Coronacion placed 10th with a combined output of 3923......»»

Lewandowski avoids Bayern embarrassment against amateur team

By Ciaran Fahey, Associated Press BERLIN (AP) — A fourth-tier team of amateurs held Bayern Munich scoreless for more than 80 minutes before Robert Lewandowski ended chances of an unlikely upset in the first round of the German Cup on Saturday. SV Drochtersen/Assel, a team from a town of only 11,000 inhabitants in the north of Germany, frustrated the country's top team until Lewandowski's 81st-minute goal finally sent the Bundesliga powerhouse through 1-0. "I'm happy we're still in the cup," Bayern coach Niko Kovac said after his first serious game in charge. Another fourth-tier side, Ulm, defeated Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 to send the defending champion out at the first hurdle. Bayer Leverkusen, Hoffenheim, Werder Bremen, Wolfsburg, Mainz and Nuremberg all progressed with wins over lower-league opposition. Hamburger SV, relegated from the Bundesliga last season, eventually prevailed 5-3 over fifth-tier side TuS Erndtebrueck. Drochtersen mayor Mike Eckhoff had called the town's match against Bayern the "game of the century," and the team's players rose to the occasion, closing down their opponents and making it difficult for them to impose their game. "I find it incredible that we were able to keep the game open for so long," Drochtersen coach Lars Uder said. "That's why I'm so proud of my team." The home side might even have gone ahead when captain Soeren Behrmann sent the ball through for Florian Nagel. The Drochtersen midfielder was only stopped by a fine reaction from Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. Drochtersen was only playing in the German Cup for the second time in its 41-year existence after winning the Lower Saxony Cup, and the club more than doubled its stadium capacity from 3,000 to 7,500 with temporary seats just for the visit of the record 18-time cup winners. Thiago Alcantara came closest for Bayern early in the second half when he struck the crossbar, before the game was interrupted by inflatable beach balls and rolls of toilet paper coming from the Munich fans' block. Thomas Mueller had a goal ruled out for the visitors before Lewandowski finally made one count when he was set up by new signing Leon Goretzka. However, there were complaints from Drochtersen Meikel Klee that he had been struck in the face by Franck Ribery in the buildup. Klee, a bricklayer, had been looking forward to facing the French winger before the game, when he said he had been a Bayern fan for 23 years......»»

NCAA: LSGH gets back on track by keeping San Beda winless

STANDINGS PERPETUAL 2-0 ARELLANO 2-0 LSGH 2-1 LPU 2-2 SAN SEBASTIAN 2-2 LETRAN 1-1 MAPUA 1-1 JRU 1-2 SAN BEDA 0-2 EAC 0-2 College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills was well aware of what didn’t work and what they had to do to get back on track in the NCAA 94 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Joel Cagulangan and Sydney Mosqueda answered the call from the get-go as the Junior Blazers imposed their will on San Beda High School from start to finish for a 73-62 decision on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Mosqueda turned in his best game in recent memory with 15 points while Cagulangan stuffed the stat sheet with 14 markers, seven rebounds, six assists, and two steals. It was also those two who spearheaded the defending champions’ strong start. “Maganda yung start namin. I urged the boys to really start strong kasi we really tend to start weak so this time, we need to step up,” head coach Marvin Bienvenida said. Boosted by a 26-point opening salvo, CSB-LSGH cruised all the way to a much welcome bounce back to a 2-1 standing. “We’re hungrier for the win. Coming from a loss, ayaw namin mag-slide down,” Bienvenida said, referring to their sorry loss to Mapua High School the last time around. On the other hand, the Red Cubs remained winless after two games. Troy Valencia was their lone bright spot in this one with 10 points and seven rebounds. Meanwhile, Arellano High School forged a two-way tie for the top spot after making quick work of Lyceum of the Philippines University, 98-78. Lars Sunga scored 17 points to lead five other teammates in double-digits as the Braves used that balance to overwhelm their opponents and obtain back-to-back wins to start the season. Rom Junsay followed up his career game with 15 points in this one while Aaron Fermin remained a force inside with a 13-point, 20-rebound double-double. In the day’s other game, San Sebastian College-Recoletos grounded Jose Rizal High School, 92-78, to improve to 2-2.

NCAA: Escamis, Red Robins exact revenge on Jr. Blazers

STANDINGS PERPETUAL 2-0 ARELLANO 1-0 LPU 2-1 JRU 1-1 LSGH 1-1 MAPUA 1-1 SAN SEBASTIAN 1-1 LETRAN 0-1 SAN BEDA 0-1 EAC 0-2 This early in the NCAA 94 Juniors Basketball Tournament, the finalists from a year ago have faced off. It was the same close contest for Mapua High School and College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills, but the result was definitely different. Clint Escamis did the heavy lifting while Dan Arches and Jonnel Policarpio provided the backup as the Red Robins avenged their Finals loss to the Junior Blazers with a convincing 95-81 victory on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Escamis, who fouled out in his first game in the season, bounced back big-time with 28 points, seven rebounds, and three assists. “Ginawa lang talaga namin yung gameplan namin. Nagbunga naman yung preparations namin so credit talaga sa mga bata,” head coach Randy Alcantara said post-game. The graduating guard also stepped up when it mattered most, dropping 10 of his output in the final frame. It was Escamis’ highlight layup and triple that capped off a massive 32-11 tidal wave bridging the third and fourth quarters that broke open a tied tally of 59 all and built up a 91-70 advantage in favor of Mapua. Arches and Policarpio did their part during that run and the former finished with 16 points, five rebounds, and four assists while the latter ended with 15 markers and four boards to help the Red Robins get into the win column after experiencing an upset to start the season. Last year, CSB-LSGH bested Mapua in three games to capture its first-ever championship. Now, the Red Robins are nothing but determined to reclaim the crown they were wearing before last season. “Siyempre, may gigil, pero dapat composed. Siyempre, ‘di kami papayag na 0-2 kami,” Alcantara said. For the defending champions, Joshua David fronted the effort with 19 points and eight rebounds while Joel Cagulangan had 14 markers, seven assists, and six boards. They suffer their first setback after a tournament-opening win. Meanwhile, Lyceum of the Philippines University is now streaking after John Barba lifted them over Jose Rizal University, 88-87. Barba dropped 30 points, including the basket and bonus in the dying seconds that proved to be the difference for the Junior Pirates. He also had eight rebounds, three assists, and three steals in the Junior Pirates’ second straight win in three games. On the other hand, the Light Bombers lost for the first time in two games despite a career-best effort from John Amores who scored 32 points.

Abella quits Foton, might return to PVL

Rommel Abella could be making a return to the Premier Volleyball League. A league source told ABS-CBN Sports that the former Pocari Sweat head coach might get another coaching job in the PVL after parting ways with his Philippine Superliga club team Foton. Abella called it quits after two conferences with the Tornadoes. Foton Philippines president and team owner Rommel Sytin promoted assistant coach Edjet Mabbayad as interim coach. Abella was hired as a replacement for Moro Branislav late last year in time for Foton’s campaign in the 2018 Grand Prix. But the multi-titled mentor faced a tough challenge in the import-laden conference playing without ace hitters EJ Laure, who made a leave of absence because of a shoulder injury, and 6-foot-5 Jaja Santiago. Foton, which won back-to-back Grand Prix titles from 2015 to 2016, placed third in this year’s edition. The Tornadoes beefed up its lineup for the Invitational by adding former Generika-Ayala hitter Shaya Adorador, San Beda University stars Nieza and Jeziela Viray and a blue-chip recruit in Ateneo de Manila Univetsity standout Bea de Leon. But even with their new recruits that bolstered the already solid and towering core of Jaja Santiago, Dindin Santiago-Manabat, CJ Rosario, Gen Casugod Maika Ortiz, with veterans Gyzelle Sy, Ivy Perez and libero Jen Reyes, Foton failed to live up to expectations. “The team is playing at the lowest level and we feel that there’s a need for change,” said Sytin. However, the coach might just get another chance in the PVL. Under his watch the Pocari Sweat Lady Warriors led by the trio of Myla Pablo, Michele Gumabao and Mel Gohing dominated the defunct V-League in the 2016 Reinforced and Open Conferences before piloting Pocari Sweat into the Reinforced Conference throne of the PVL last year. The source declined to put on record which team will get the services of Abella.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

NCAA Jrs: Perps downs San Beda for first time in recent memory

STANDINGS Perpetual 1-0 San Sebastian 1-0 Arellano 0-0 EAC 0-0 JRU 0-0 Letran 0-0 LPU 0-1 LSGH 0-0 Mapua 0-0 San Beda 0-1 University of Perpetual Help accomplished what its seniors counterparts failed to do as it shocked San Beda High School, 72-69, on Sunday at the start of the 94th NCAA Juniors Basketball Tournament at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Mark Gallano and Edzel Galoy led the Junior Altas with 16 points apiece and it was the two who made the game-winning plays with the former assisting to the latter in scoring the baskets that broke a 69-all deadlock. Yukihiro Kawamura then split his free throws right after the Red Cubs bungled their last play to seal the deal. “The boys showed heart,” said Perpetual coach Michael Saguiguit in Filipino. It was the Junior Altas' first victory against San Beda in recent memory. Ato Badolato, who coached the Red Cubs for decades but has retired and has turned as athletic director, said he can’t remember the last time San Beda lost to Perpetual. “I can’t remember anymore, maybe in the early 90s,” he said. The Junior Altas also avenged the Altas’ heartbreaking 65-67 defeat to the Red Lions in the league inaugurals last Saturday. In the other game, San Sebastian College-Recoletos edged out Lyceum of the Philippines University, 69-68, to join Perpetual at the helm.

MPBL: Manila opens campaign with statement win over Bataan

Manila has wasted no time in making it known that it should be looked at as one of the contenders in the 2018 Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Anta Datu Cup. NAASCU standout Aris Dionisio had a breakout game in his league debut as the home team Stars stole the spotlight from stacked Bataan, 89-82, last Saturday at the San Andres Gym. Dionisio, the pride of St. Clare University, tallied 21 points, seven rebounds, three blocks and two steals to tow his team to a season-opening win. It was also his fastbreak layup in the dying seconds that sealed the deal for Manila and closed the door for good for the Risers who had the likes of ex-pro Gary David, UAAP star J-Jay Alejandro, NCAA star Gab Dagangon, as well as ABL champions Robbie Celiz and Pamboy Raymundo. Backstopping Dionisio were former PBA D-League player Adrian Celada who had 18 points to his name as well as ex-pros Reil Cervantes and Marvin Hayes who had 15 and 13 markers, respectively. For Bataan, Byon Villarias topped the scoring column with 17 points. The highly-touted team will have to wait a little longer to prove their worth, however. Meanwhile, Navotas has also barged into the win column courtesy of the hot hands of Levi Hernandez who shot his team over expansion team Pasay, 83-75. Arellano University product Hernandez poured in his 12 of his 26 points in the third quarter to take both the lead and momentum for the Clutch. They would never relinquish those en route to 1-0. Former San Beda University player Yvan Ludovice paced the 0-1 Voyagers with 17 points.
